Re: can I tell an ssh sync operation to ignore an unreadable shared file?

Thanks for your suggestion.

can I tell an ssh sync operation to ignore an unreadable shared file?

I'm using this command line to sync local files with a remote machine via ssh:

winscp.com /log=sync.log /loglevel=0 /command "option transfer binary" "open sftp://username:password@192.168.0.1:22 -privatekey=key.ppk" "cd ~/backup" "lcd d:\" "synchronize remote -mirror -delete -preservetime" "exit"


The process stops because on the files cannot be read by WinSCP, as it is already being used by another process:

. 2015-12-14 00:54:50.328 File: 'D:\portable\seamonkey\profile\parent.lock' [2015-12-13T22:39:29.578Z] [0]

After this, WinSCP exits.

I would like for WinSCP to ignore the unreadable file and proceed with the rest. Is this possible?
